Welcome back from the Fall Break!

Tutoring: Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning. Feel free to see me if you need another time.

Assessments: Quiz likely on  Thursday or Friday and some unit 2 test corrections in class on Monday. If you are absent Monday, see me for ways to gain some points on the test grade.

Monday
Today, we start off with a reflection on the break. I will share my week in Florida. Next, the unit 3 test are graded, yet I see room for corrections, especially on the composition of functions. You will have an opportunity to make up some points. Also., you will tour the hallway to find roots of given polynomials.

HW: none

Tuesday
Today, you will find all roots of a given polynomial, given no roots. The class will explore the Rational Root Theorem ( p and q). You will run synthetic division to find the first root. Also, you will find other roots of a 4th degree polynomial.

HW: None

Wednesday
Today, we determine a root and a factor. Also, you write the equation of a polynomial from the roots and complete the circle problem.
